Best Local Jazz Musician 

Rahsaan Barber

When saxophonist Rahsaan and his trombonist brother Roland first began turning heads as high school students it became clear that they had something special to say as soloists and keepers of the jazz flame. Many years later, after successful periods of study at Indiana University and in New York, Rahsaan Barber has established himself as both a hard-working professional and an instructor at Belmont. But he's now excelling in his current role as both host of the Nashville Jazz Workshop's Contemporary Jazz Series and a participant. (He's a member of both El Movimiento and a group led by drummer Nioshi Jackson.) Through his prowess and advocacy, Barber is also able to reach youthful audiences—something jazz can always use.
